GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Throughout the month of July, Men’s Wearhouse will be holding a special program that’s helping men who are looking to get back into the workforce.
Their National Suit Drive occurs simultaneously in Canada and the USA and is North America’s largest collection of men’s gently used professional clothing. This will be the ninth year that our company is hosting this effort to encourage people to transform their unwanted business attire into a fresh start for millions of disadvantaged men who are trying to re-enter the workforce.
Held at more than 800 Men’s Wearhouse locations across the US, the National Suit Drive collects men’s and women’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, belts, and shoes and distributes them to approximately 200 local charities who in turn, mentor, coach, and outfit those who are re-entering the workforce so they can make a great first impression.
The local non-profit partners also prepare these men and women to re-enter the job market through résumé-building workshops, interview preparation, and employment training programs.
Men’s Wearhouse’s goal this year is to collect 250-thousand clothing items. So, if you have some clothes you’re not going to wear again – here’s your chance to help someone else.
